:: Recording Notes ::
0 - 26- man chorus from Kakheti - very nice but short - trained folk chorus. [Source: Tape notes]
0 - This is one of the most ancient examples of two-voiced songs. This song is sung during the harvest. Two soloists develop the song. This song differs from the work song heard the day before in that it has three voices and the one before had two. Earlier these work songs were sung with two voices and now they are sung with three.
